‘Someone like You’ - UNPAID (Actor's won't be paid but this is a great opportunity to be promoted and gain more experience!)
(Romance/Drama Short Film - will be published worldwide on YouTube)

Emily Johnson grieves over the tragic death of her boyfriend, Kyle Hanson. He was killed in a knife attack and now it is time for Emily to face the music, when she is invited to his funeral.

At the funeral reception, Emily meets his older brother Callum Hanson. He is cruel and filled with anger but shows his full attention towards Emily's sadness. As days pass, Emily discovers her diagnoses of anxiety and depression after Kyle's death.

Nevertheless, Callum is there to comfort her when she needs a shoulder to cry on. However, there is more to Callum than meets her eyes, and it appears that Callum knows a lot more about his brother’s last moments than what he has let on. Was there more to Kyle’s death and will Emily have to look a little closer to home for the blame?


All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Job payment

This job is unpaid - Student project - experience for actors


For those who have applied for roles and have been messaging me regarding self tapes, I want to let you all know that I will be meeting with my photographer friend in North Greenwich by the O2 Arena on Thursday  6th June at 1PM. This is to photograph those who have been chosen so far for their applied roles, so if you are free that day, it will be great if you can come down and we will be able to discuss the film and also look at scripts to get to grips with your characters. Please do not worry if some of you have not got a reply from me yet about your application, I am still sorting out the suitability for other character roles such as; Louisa, Malik, Carol, Maria, Dave, Dan and Tyler. The reason I'm still looking at these roles is because I'm still waiting on some self tapes to be able to make a decision. The quicker, I can get self tapes, the quicker I can choose actors and arrange to meet you on Thursday.

Just so all those are aware who have been in contact with me.

Thank you!
Kaitlyn (Indépendant filmmaker)
